TextExpander 6.2.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Smile has released TextExpander 6.2.2 [1], which paves the way for compatibility with macOS 10.13 High Sierra. The text-expansion utility also adds a new “expand string” scripting command for automating the expansion of text strings (learn more from this Smile blog post [2]), improves spacing for group prefix and group prefix override functions (see more about per-group snippet prefixes at this Smile blog post [3]), resolves excess conflicting snippet groups, and addresses a potential data loss when the server is slow to respond. TextExpander 6 is available via a monthly or annual subscription, and Smile continues to offer TextExpander 5 [4] as a standalone app for $44.95 (TidBITS members [5] receive a 20 percent discount only on the purchase of version 5). ($40 annual subscription, 6.4 MB, release notes [6], 10.10+)
